Designed and built from DARPA funding, Boston Dynamics’ newest robot can climb stairs, making no where safe for you to hide… even if it walks like an angry 5 year old.
I wasn’t exaggerating last week when I said these killer robots would become a regular thing…
Via Boston Dynamics:
A modified platform resembling these robots is expected to be used as government-funded equipment (GFE) for performers in Tracks B and C of the DARPA Maximum Mobility and Manipulation Robotics Challenge that will be held soon.
The GFE Platform is expected to have two arms, two legs, a torso and a head, and will be physically capable of performing all of the tasks required for disaster response scenarios scheduled in the Challenge.
Is our lovely government prepping for a major disaster in a few years and just hasn’t told us?
